 +**WARNING**: At least in **Debian 11 Bullseye** it seems that the **dovecot-lda** sometimes (not always!) tries to write to the **Dovecot Stats Service** using the **/run/dovecot/stats-writer** socket. Unfortunately the socket is owned by **root:dovecot** and has mode **0660** (default Debian settings), whereas the LDA is invoked by Postfix with just the user's privileges. So you will find error messages like this into the mail.log:
 +postfix/local[76866]: 7E67B7D3F4: to=<user@domain.tld>, ...,
 +    status=bounced (Command died with status 134:
 +    "/usr/lib/dovecot/dovecot-lda -f "$SENDER" -a "$RECIPIENT"".
 +    Command output: lda(lica-marilena):
 +    Error: net_connect_unix(/run/dovecot/stats-writer) failed:
 +    Permission denied Aborted Unable to flush stdout: Broken pipe )
 +It seems that the quickest and simplest solution is to make the socket **0666 mode** (which will risk the stats service to be abused). Add the following snippet to **/etc/dovecot/conf.d/15-lda.conf**:
 +service stats {
 +  unix_listener stats-writer {
 +    mode = 0666
 +  }
 +See the following posts about the problem:
 +  * [[|stats-writer permission issue when using LDA via procmail - Debian bug #961033]]
 +  * [[|postfix, dovecot-lda, /run/dovecot/stats-writer socket permision and local user delivery, again]]
